Believe it or not the pictures below were not taken fifty years or more ago but just six months or so ago. I am old enough to remember visiting a few hardware stores like this one when I was a kid in the 1950s. I think that is where I inherited my fascination with nut & bolts and such.
I don’t know how long this store can survive but I hope it lasts forever. It doesn’t hurt that it is in a pretty rural area of Indiana. 🙂
